    Kuei-Ti Lu 10/27/2020 1:24 AM
    I still don't know the definition of Restorative Justice and hence don't really know how to answer this question well.
  • Reflection Question

    I'm not sure, but I have access to tap water.
  • Reflection Question
    Community Support Native Communities
    Indigenous speaker and activist Winona LaDuke says that, "most indigenous ceremonies, if you look to their essence, are about the restoration of balance — they are a reaffirmation of our relationship to creation. That is our intent: to restore, and then to retain balance and honor our part in creation." Why is balance important to sustainability?

    Kuei-Ti Lu's avatar
    Kuei-Ti Lu 10/27/2020 12:35 AM
    I need to know what balance means here to answer this question.

  • Reflection Question
    Nature Forage for My Food
    People are motivated to forage for many different reasons: as a source for food, a means of income, to connect with nature, to participate in cultural tradition, transmitting specific ecological knowledge, or as a means of stewarding local and native plant populations are just a few examples. What is your chief motivation for foraging?

    Kuei-Ti Lu's avatar
    Kuei-Ti Lu 10/25/2020 8:59 PM
    It's a way in which I connect with my friends.
